June’s Curator Conversations at 21c Chicago will feature Vincent Uribe and Hope Wang! Curator Conversations is a monthly series that asks a local art curator to chat with an artist of their choice with ties to the Chicago arts community. Each month we’ll switch up those pairings to give you a look into the rich arts community that we have here in the city.
Join us on Zoom, June 24th at 6pm CST to hear about these artists’ work and what’s going on in the Chicago art scene. Check out the artist’s work below!
